Ahead of Friday’s Drive I caught up with actress & co-producer Carianne Dunford to chat about a short story with a long reach, The Long Walk. Based on a true story, this uplifting and thought-provoking psychological drama part-filmed in Essex puts mental health in the spotlight and is now in post-production. Carianne talked a little about her character and exclusively revealed two of the profile actors in the film. Two familiar faces of British TV, Michelle Collins (Coronation Street, Dr Who, Casualty) and Daniel Casey (Eastenders, Midsomer Murders, Marchlands, The Bill) – if that wasn’t enough to tempt you it also features Phoenix FM’s own Nick Field and Stewart Pink as extras!
